There are some new residential building projects underway, after a few years of a very slow market for new homes. It seems that housing development is returning. New home construction in Frederick Md is reaching levels we haven’t seen in several years.

Buyer Representation for New Homes

Did you know, when purchasing new home construction, buyers can have their own buyer representation? The real estate agent at the builder’s model home is the seller’s agent for the builder, representing the interest of the builder.

As a buyer, there are advantages to having your own buyer’s agent to represent your interests. Most builders, but not all, have built-in costs that cover the Realtor’s commission.

  1. The cost to the buyer is zero, so why not have representation?

  2. Realtors who have experience with new construction know the questions to ask along all the phases of the build.

  3. The buyer’s agent can help you interpret and understand the contract.

  4. The Realtor can do a non-biased market analysis, one important and often overlooked item in new construction. Tip: Someone purchasing new construction needs to be dedicated to staying in the neighborhood for 2-4 years after the builder closes out, especially if the new buyer only puts 10% or less down.  The builder basically controls the value of the home until the neighborhood is closed out.

  5. Many things are negotiable, whether the builder offers or not. Using an experienced buyer’s agent can be a benefit in any negotiations. Agents negotiate every day as a part of their job. How often do home buyers engage in negotiations?

  6. Market conditions greatly dictate a builder’s incentive to make deals. A buyer’s agent can help you know when market conditions are right for these benefits.

Different States, Different Laws

In Maryland, laws concerning real estate licensing require that sales agents for new home builders have a Maryland real estate license, as of Oct. 1, 2007. (There are some exemptions for custom home builders.) Maryland is a consumer advocacy state. Issues of Agency Representation are there to protect consumers in Maryland, one of the first states to enact real estate agency laws in the early 90’s.

If you choose to work with a buyer’s agent on a new construction home, make sure your agent is experienced and will work for you. There are always stories of agents who did nothing but pick up a check, make sure your agent is not one of them.
